Where do you stand in your faith? Would you say that your faith something you believe, or is it something that you are? Is it simply a part of your life, or is it what fulfills your life? Do you speak with God often or only in church? Do you find yourself asking someone else to do things such as pray, or do you muster up the faith and courage to do it yourself? Do you have a real relationship with the living God? These questions are just a few we need to ask ourselves as tomorrow comes. As a Christian, the future and integrity of Christianity is of the upmost importance. We know Satan will not totally prevail, but are we willing to let any fall without mounting up a resistance.
If we as the body of Christ knew when and how these things would happen, we would of course be there to stop it correct. The problem is evil does not come in overnight. It begins with one simple compromise, and then another, and another. Each year what made up the moral standard of our society changes with every compromise. What at one time would never been thought of, years later is of no large deal. Satan most often does not come in from the front door; he sneaks in, and comes as an angel of light. (2 Corinthians 11:14) He comes in manners of tolerance, and acceptance of sin, and the lack of passion in the hearts of God’s people. The church has taken a back sit to the progression of society, and therefore yielded its power to the working of evil. Christians, its time we take back what belongs to God.
We must come to a state of mind that we decide what it is we really believe in. Do you as a Christian believe enough to become a radical for Christ? Would you stand in front of anyone and declare it? Do we have the love and passion for Christ to be willing to turn over tables, and stand in the places of the Pharisees and declare truth? If not, perhaps we need to really consider what it is we are doing this for. Scripture does indeed say the Satan will not prevail against Christ’s church. But note this, if we as Christians turn a deaf ear or a blind eye and it causes a child of God to either fall, or to have a person never come to know God, then their blood is on our hands. We see this in Ezek. 33:7–9 It reads Son of man, I have appointed you a watchman for the house of Israel . . . When I say to the wicked, ‘O wicked man, you shall surely die,’ and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require from your hand. But if you on your part warn a wicked man . . . you have delivered your life’’ Note that when it says “die” it means a spiritual death.
God is declaring his will for the church. Will you stand and uphold his standard? Is God tugging at the strings of your heart, and moving you to act? Is he calling you to be a voice in the wilderness? If God calls you friend, he will also enable you, so never fear. Stand brave and true for no greater can a person be then a person indwelled with the spirit of God.
